Reality Check: Readers’ Responses

Mr. Campion,

It takes a lot of guts to do what you do. (THEOLOGY OF SCIENCE – Issue: 2/26/14) Not sure what purpose it serves, other than to prod and poke (mostly fun) and confront. It is always an enjoyable read, this Reality Check. I have been a fan …

Reality Check: Religious Nonsense & The Law

I ain’t got no quarrel with them Viet Cong.

—Muhammad Ali

 

This week religion has jammed its hefty portion of silly into the ways of reality. Again. Why not? Humans are proficient at propping up fantasy to avoid obeying the law. Lord knows I do.

Reality Check: Crimea – The Russian Sheep Theorem

Take a moment and thank your preferred deity or talisman that John McCain didn’t become president in 2008. Regardless of what you think of this current model, McCain is certifiably insane with aggression and has urged this country to embroil itself in every skirmish, revolution, uprising, civil war and invasion …

Reality Check: Readers’ Responses

Okay, I get it. Christie fucked up. (LAST CHANCE POWER DRIVE – Issue: 1/5/14) But enough already with these obsessions. The Left got on the Right for obsessing on Benghazi and now this? It is getting ridiculous. The man stood up and took the heat. He said he didn’t know …

Reality Check: My Friend… The Next Governor Of New York?

While being a professional colleague of mine for nearly 20 years, during which he has displayed nothing but an enviable commitment to ethics in all forms, Rob Astorino has managed to succeed at the impossible; competing in two vocations replete with soulless bottom-feeding degenerates; journalism and politics, while maintaining

Reality Check: Theology Of Science

To kill an error is as good a service as, and sometimes better than, the establishing of a new truth or fact.

—Charles Darwin

The “what should be” never did exist, but people keep trying to live up to it. There is no “what should be,” there is only “what

Editor’s Note: After a spate of fruitless haggling, the following was sent to The Reality Check News & Information Desk on the early morning hours of the ninth day of February, 2014. An angry directive from Mr. Campion to “Send to press anything that lunatic McStevens can muster” was soon

In the early ’90s, Babe Ruth biographer Kal Wagenheim told me the only way to describe the Bambino’s effect on the game of baseball and America at large during his first few tumultuously historic years in New York pinstripes would be to say it was like he had been dropped …
